Policy area

In this consultation we set out our views on Scottish Hydro Electric Transmission’s proposed Orkney project, which would connect the Orkney islands to the main transmission network in Great Britain.

This document will cover two broad assessment areas:

  1. Whether we think there is a technical need for the project.
  2. The alternative regulatory models that could be used to deliver the project

This consultation is aimed at parties interested in our views on this transmission project, including potential bidders, incumbent network operators, interested consumer groups, as well as other relevant stakeholders.
